#1 150 out of 100 prisoners joined the rebels? Wow, that's one heck of a recruitment program they have there!

#2 Their decision was based upon Chicago style, secret ballots.

#3 I would imagine that they meant 250 captured, and 150 "galvanized".

If hunger's starting to be that big of a factor among guys with guns, the civilian starvation body-count could quickly eclipse that from violence up to this point. In the old days hunger and disease were the two big killers in war, with actual throat-slitting coming a fairly distant third.

Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.

#4 Alleppo sounds like one of the Marx brothers. Who are the rebels? Looks like the strong horses are islamists. Despite the differences between tribes and groups, they tend to unite against the infidels (us). I smell caliphate.

The pic looks like WWII Germany--possibly Berlin. The actions of the allies brought the war to an end. Today, you would probably have to clear such actions with an army of attorneys in Washington. It would be debated forever and then maybe never approved. Do hearts and minds campaigns ever really work?

#7 "Aleppo Sacked" -- what is 'a headline from any century since the 5th BC', Alex?

#8 Well, if the Infantry College got captured I guess it wasn't very good at teaching infantry...stuff.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
